Module Features

Purpose and Description of the Module

The SFAR-S-6TI module allows measuring temperature with popular sensors (PT100, PT500, PT1000, NI100, KTY81-110) and thermocouples (type J, K, T, N, S, R, B). In addition, it is possible to measure voltages in the range from 256 mV (10 μV resolution) to 2048 mV (100 μV resolution) as well as to measure resistance to 8 kΩ.

The device has a set of six inputs for the temperature measurement. 2- or 3-wire measurement of temperature is feasible with PT100, NI100, PT500, and PT1000 sensors , and 2-wire measurement is feasible with thermocouples and other sensors. In addition, the module is equipped with 2 configurable digital outputs.

Values are read via RS485 (Modbus), so the module can be easily integrated with popular PLCs, HMI, or PC equipped with the appropriate adapter.

The module is connected to the RS485 bus with a twisted-pair wire. Communication is via Modbus RTU or Modbus ASCII. The use of 32-bit ARM core processor provides fast processing and quick communication. The baud rate is configurable from 2400 to 115200.

The module is designed for mounting on a DIN rail in accordance with DIN EN 5002.

The module is equipped with a set of LEDs to indicate the status of inputs and outputs, which is useful for diagnostic purposes and helping to find errors. Module configuration is done via USB by using a dedicated computer program.It also allows for changing the parameters using the Modbus protocol or set the Modbus address using the DIP switches under the front panel.
